Do you need to take the ACT or SAT?
First thing you should do is speak with your School Counselor about what your plans are for after high school. If you are planning on attending a 2-year technical school (ex. Piedmont Technical College, Midlands Technical College, Tri-County Technical College, etc.) you do NOT need the ACT or SAT score to be accepted. These two year schools require a placement exam called the e-Compass exam that you can take at the tech school campus.
Students who are going to a 4-year college will need to take the ACT or SAT. Please check the college admissions page to see what score requirements you need to meet. Again, please go to the Guidance Office to discuss your plans with your counselor...we are here to help you figure things out!
To sign up for the ACT or SAT you will need to create a user account (if you have not already done so) at their respective websites:
Please keep your user name and password in a safe place because you WILL have to use this info to log back in and see/send your scores.
Each test has various dates and locations it is given. You should sign up for the date that works best for you and location you will be able to travel to on that test date.
